. >>> thanks very much. happening now, president obama on this day he has some time to raise money in person, but only time for a phone call with israel's leader. more criticism coming in. we're also looking at the obama administration's evolving attempts to explain who's responsible for the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. is the confusion becoming a political liability? and mitt romney says he has a little secret. you're going to hear him predict he'll win a state most experts think is safely in president obama's column. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 39 days until the presidential election. in about 20 minutes the president begins a series of fundraisers right here in washington. those are the only public events on his calendar today. yet this is the same day the president didn't have time for a face-to-face meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's in new york. instead they spoke by phone. here's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: wolf, the white house always stresses that the presid
of president obama. a french flag also getting the same treatment. a protest of a publication of the caricatures of the prophet muhammad. martha: president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton are now being featured in a tv ad in pakistan that denounces the anti-islam movie that contributed to some of this violence. watch. >> since our founding the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. martha: that is one of the ads that is being played there. we'll have more on that ad, all of that coming up a little bit later in the show. gregg: now to the ongoing investigation into the deadly attack at the u.s. consulate in libya and new reports of serious security lapses and misjudgements that may have made this tragedy a whole lot worse than it neated to be and one of the big questions right now, why u.s. officials ordered extra security in cairo but overlooked a possibility of trouble at other diplomatic posts and allowed the u.s. ambassador in libya to be mostly unprotected? the deputy secret
shifting to president obama. we're about to find out which way the state of nevada is moving. and new developments in the hunt for the suspects in the attack that killed the united states ambassador to libya and three other americans. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> with only 47 days to go until the election, the romney campaign's about to roll out another new strategy. voters will be seeing a lot more of mitt romney. in fact, we're only minutes away from his speech at a rally in florida. our national political correspondent jim acosta is joining us now live from sarasota to set the scene. jim, what's going on? >> reporter: wolf, we expect mitt romney to be out here in sarasota, florida, in just a few minutes from now. this is where his advisors say after a relatively light schedule over the last couple weeks, mitt romney and his campaign will be picking up the pace. and after seeming to defend those comments on that hidden camera video on government dependency, romney appears to be shifting again on that message as well looking for something that will stick. aft
that speech, on the cbs evening news, president obama also had sharp words for mitt romney, who's come under fire from democrats and some republicans for his statements lashing out at the obama administration's response to the attacks in benghazi and cairo. statements that whatever you believe about american foreign policy are simply not factual. we'll get to the battle over that in a moment. first we do want to focus on the attacks themselves, what happened last night and what is happening right now with the latest information we have. again, you're looking at live pictures now from cairo. as we said, breaking news both in libya and cairo to tell you about. yesterday's all-out assault on the american embassy may be over but the fighting around it continues tonight in cairo. the compound now ringed with security forces, egyptian security forces who are reportedly using tear gas and about 500 protesters gathering at a mosque in nearby tahrir square. those are the images you're seeing. amid all that, we're also learning more details, pretty bizarre stuff, about that video that seems to have li
been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking ab
that is almostatz important. president obama went in 2009 and had the speech in cairo reaching out saying we changing the relationship with muslim nations. this does not bode well for that in pointing out the difference compare to him and bush. >> brian: biggest thing not calling egypt a ally. who is the hillary clinton. she only wanted 24 years whompt could be next. senator kerry or the ambassador we saw spinning things and possibly the disillusion with the truth. ambassador susan rice. >> steve: it looks like the smart money said she would wind up with a national security job in the second term of a barack obama administration. >> gretchen: we'll continue to talk about this. are the obama's chicken's coming home to roost? many foretold the deadly attack. i a plane comes in for a landing and minus wheels. that's why we are showing it to you. >> steve: old double nickel. ♪ come on baby, and rescue. ♪ come on, baby. and rescue me. ♪ cause i need you by my side. ♪ can't you see that i am lonely .... i love this time of year. it's all about change. the kids are going back to school, it'
john mccain supported president obama's action to oust moammar khadafy and the president's steps taken since then. i spoke to senator mccain earlier today. senator mccain, a source familiar with the ambassador's thinking toll us in the months before his death he talked about being worried about the never-ending security threats in bengha benghazi, the threats he was facing and growing al qaeda presence and mentioned being on an al qaeda hit list. and he said in june to a journalist, maybe you should head east to benghazi to the situation there which appears the be heating up. given what we are learning about the concerns that he had, does it make sense to you the small level of security that he apparently had with him? >> it doesn't make any sense. and i'll tell you what else doesn't make any sense, the white house spokesman, secretary of state and ambassador to the u.n. stating categorically that it was not a terrorist attack when obviously it had all the earmarks of a terrorist attack, including rocket-propelled grenades, heavy weapons an a well carried out military operation. and wh
in listening to the radio reports, no. headline is that the obama administration said the libya attack was a terrorist attack. it doesn't say original low that they said it wasn't. >> eric: they had to leave enough time few hours after our diplomats were killed. president obama got on air force won and did a fundraiser in vegas. if it is terror and the president decide to go to vegas and collect checks it looks worse. they bought time and put a week between that decision and now terror it makes him look better. >> brian: by the way, the president has attended the last five, and jay carny got snippy. he suggested to clarify this is our question to and from the producer. just to clarify. did it presidency that it was not an attack on 9/11? is that the administration or is that the president's view? jay carny said the attack occurred on september 11th. he used the same calendar on the white house that you do and yes, he sees it. >> yes, snippy, right. >> gretchen: you don't have to be a brain surgeon that september 11th something bad happened in 2001 and to be snippy about that date, i do
. it is still unclear what the libyan government is doing to bring those killers to justice. president obama yesterday telling the u.n. assembly that america will get to the bottom of the murders of chris stevens and the others. >> the attack on civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. there should be no doubt we will be relentless tracking down the killers and bringing them tobill: how possit while order in libya is still unknown? we want to begin our coverage now. greg palkot streaming live out of tripoli. what is the latest on this militia crackdown there, greg? >> reporter: bill, martha, we're getting mixed signals about that. we were just talking to our contact in benghazi. he said one of the key militias in that city is it falling into line with the government. we've been out and about here in tripoli. we visited one compound where militias were driven out by libyan security forces but there are new protests planned for here and in benghazi on friday. a sign maybe the folks here aren't too sure what is going on with the militias. amid new concerns some of their weapons are going
president obama is vowing to find the killer there. the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens died tuesday night after a mob stormed the consulate in benghazi. the violence, though, spreading not only in cairo, and you can see live pictures from egypt, it's spreading in the region and to a certain degree as well. we'll stay on top of it. that's it for us, thank you very much for watching, "ac 360" starts right now. breaking news tonight. >>> good evening, everyone. american warships and u.s. marines on the move, drones airborne. and a running battle on the streets of cairo between police and protesters outside and near the u.s. embassy and at a mosque in tahrir square. these are live pictures. late new developments in the wake of the siege there yesterday and the attack on the u.s. consulate that left four americans dead, including j. christopher stevens, the ambassador to libya who's being remembered as a dedicated and talented advocate for this country overseas. it is hard to overstate the significance of what happened last night at that american consulate in benghazi. he is the first ambassad
in that part of libya than tripoli. >> previously you mentioned people from the obama administration said they felt this wasn't a planned attack, an offshoot of this video. but the director of the national counterterrorism center said at a hearing today, attack in benghazi was "a terrorist attack." he didn't specify if it was preplanned or not. it goes beyond what we've heard before. how significant is that? >> i think it's significant that the secretary of the united nations would go on our networks and tell people things that are absolutely false and fly in the face of the facts. i think maybe the american people are owed an apology. but the most important thing is that we have to understand that this video was not the cause of it. the cause of it was islamists who use these videos in order to inflame these people, in order to attack america. i mean, anderson, i'm confident right now there, are people making videos, just as a french cartoonist made cartoons, are making videos right now. we should stand up to freedom of speech and we'll defend people to speak out, rather than condemn hat
the tragedy to criticize the president's foreign policy agenda. >> i think president obama has demonstrated a lack of clarifity to a foreign policy. my foreign policy has three branches. >> the only spesty we have is a repeated mantra regarding confidence, clarity and resolve. it is worth noting that if this latest line of attack is aimed at winning romney undecided voters the international stage is not one where he has thus far proven himself to be the greatest actor. previous performances have included calling russia our number one geopolitical foe, alienating much of the united kingdom during the olympics in london, undermining sensitive bilateral negotiations over chinese dissident and failing to mention the war in afghanistan during his convention speech. john heilemann, i turn to you first on this. i think a lot of us were sort of taken aback at the back and forth between the romney campaign and i guess the white house, more specifically as far as the romney campaign and how they've handled this, it seems to be moves that are nakedly political and i think to some degree sort of shocki
: i believe president obama gave a statement yesterday where he said it would work with the libyans to bring the people who attacked the embassy to justice. u.s. marines are going to the embassy in tripoli, but that is window dressing. i think the libyan government pose a real desire for america to be engaged in libya. i am sure there will be an effort to track the group behind the attack. libya is facing a similar challenge to morsi. libyans are devout muslim people. in fighting gaddafi, many happen to be more hard-core islamic fighters. i think the libyan officials in government are struggling with that. their tendency is to blame events like the death of ambassador stevens on gaddafi loyalists. that is probably the case. host: thank you for your time this morning. we appreciate it. from the washington post, a florida pastor is asked to withdraw film backing. what should the u.s. response be? patty on the republican line. caller: i think we should -- i do not think we should apologize. this is just a ridiculous move to blame a silly little film. the president goes out and apologiz
of hope. anna, cnn, kabul. >>> hello again. in the cnn newsroom president obama is about to step to the mike in miami to woo latino voters a day after mitt romney spoke about immigration to the same crowd and space shuttle endeavour is making its final flight before retirement. we'll take a look back at its amazing history of exploration. let's get right to it. >>> the suspect in the colorado movie theater massacre returns to court today, and he could face more charges. james holmes already faces murder and attempted murder charges. prosecutors want to add ten more charges bringing the count to 152. lawyers are also expected to argue whether a notebook holmes allegedly sent to his psychiatrist before the shootings can be used at trial. holmes is accused of opening fire in a crowded movie theater during a midnight showing of the latest batman movie. 12 people died and 58 were wounded. >>> it is president obama's turn to make his case before a latino audience today. the president arrives in miami just a short time from now for a meet the candidates forum univision next hour. it's t
may cost president obama. and politically looking at this sort of locked up place for him in a foreign policy debate. ben stein coming out yesterday saying he thinks this whole scandal could be worse than watergate because at the end of it people died. take a listen. >> they had warning after warning. yesterday's "wall street journal" makes it extremely clear how much warning they had. various assassination attempts. destruction of property attempts reports from various intelligence sources. they did nothing to protect the ambassador whatsoever. that's one. plus, there was the coverup afterwards. how much worse than the watergate coverup? that's a joke. >> that echoed comments made by governor huckabee. he said essentially the same thing that this does resemble the coverup at watergate in this case someone died. >> governor huckabee is going to be on with us so we can talk about that have you seen enough of all of this in the media? in fact if you have been watching fox news we have been talking about it every single day. if you happened to watch "the today show" this past week or good
. thanks for being with good morning, it's saturday, september 29th. i'm alisyn camerota. the obama administration withheld crucial information about the u.s. consulate attack on purpose. one government agency is taking responsibility is this just the white house trying to cover up the coverup. >> for get state and federal taxes. if the united nations gets its way the united states tax me g.e.d.en could go global. >> just how friendly are our skies? "fox & friends" begins right now. snet ♪ >> good saturday morning, everyone. welcome in to "fox & friends" on this early fall morning. coming up in just about a half an hour we are going to talk about whether or not spanking should be considered a form of child abuse. one state is actually moving, perhaps, to make it that way. you could be locked up as a result of it. >> looking forward to that debate. we will answer that question. which one of us three is the funniest reporter in new york? we'll not give you any clues. >> no clues. >> i said no -- >> more on that later on in the program. >> meanwhile the top story, the news that has c
on the internet that rid cutes prophet muhammad. hillary clinton and president obama promised swift action. >> today we mourn four more americans who represent the very best of the united states of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act and make no mistake, justice will be done. >> the friendship between our countries born out of shared struggle will not be another casualty of this attack. a free and stable libya is still in america's interest and security. and we will not turn our back on that. >> meanwhile, mitt romney condemned the loss of american lives but he also seized on the attacks even before daybreak slamming the administration's response in what became a fierce back and forth between the two campaigns. romney then doubled down this morning. >> i spoke out when the key fact that i referred to was known which was that the embassy of the united states issued what appeared to be an apology for american principles. that was a mistake. and i believe that when a mistake is made of that significance you speak out. >> we start our
in the presidential race had surpassed $600 million: $318.5 million for team romney, $287.2 million for team obama. and get this: more than half of all that money for ads has been sent in just three swing states, florida, ohio and virginia. what's more, huge sums, not only for ads but for get-out-the-vote efforts like mailings and robocalls are going into house and senate races in the fight to control congress. altogether, three billion dollars in campaign cash have been raised so far, and a projected $6 billion by the election, less than seven weeks away. it's not just that we're being hit by swarms of ads thicker than locusts. what's truly frightening is that we don't know who's really paying for them. president barack obama: i'm pledging to cut the deficit -- >>> romney's worth $200 million. >>> the president's doing a mediocre job. >>> governor romney cares about big business. >>> real job growth cut the debt. >>> i had no healthcare. >>> -- to the highest corporate bidders -- >>> if you're a super pac, empowered by the supreme court's citizens united decision to take unlimited donations, you'
criticism of president obama's international policies. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> dramatic developments unfolding. let's begin with some important new developments in the attacks on u.s. facilities in both cairo, egypt. and benghazi, libya. u.s. sources now tell cnn the attack in benghazi was actually planned in advance and the perpetrators used a protest outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is keeping tabs on the u.s. military's response to what's going on as well. let's go to jill first. she's watching what's going on. jill, what's the latest over at the state department beyond the heartbreak of a top u.s. diplomat, three others killed? >> right, wolf. just in a few minutes we
the obama administration has handled what happened in libya and the ilg of our own u.s. ambassador and some very mixed messages. >> we have no information to suggest that it was a pre-planned attack. it is not a reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of. >> some have thought -- sought to justify this vicious behavior along with the protest that took place at our embassy in cairo yesterday as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet. >> this was not a pre-planned, premeditated attack. >> we don't know yet. so we're going to continue to investigate this. >> how could ambassador rice and jay carney there just a week ago have said so unquiskably this was not a pre-planned uncoordinated attack. this was not a terrorist attack. this had nothing to do with 9/11. this had nothing to do with the u.s. policies. they were so unequivocal. why did they have that message a week ago? and now it has morphed completely into. >> a 180. >> a 180 before we debate it. hear what hillary clinton said yesterday now about this attack on our consulate. >> what happened in benghazi was a tars
favors president obama in the polls as well. late night rally in miami, romney told the audience that economic policies will be better for hispanics. he is trying to distance himself from the fund-raiser comments, dismissing 47% of voters. new polls suggest they might not be so damaging after all. among registered voters, 20% say they're more likely to vote for romney because of it. 36% are less likely. 43% say his remarks make absolutely no difference. even more important here, among independents, 15% say they're more likely to vote for romney, 29% less likely, 53% say it makes absolutely no difference. at a forum on univision, he struck an exclusive tone. >> this is a campaign about the 100%. over the last several years, you've seen greater and greater divisiveness in this country. we had hoped to come back together. instead, you've seen us pull apart and politics has driven us apart in some respects. so my campaign is about the 100% in america. i'm concerned about that. i'm concerned about the fact that over the past four years life has become harder for americans. more people
